Why Are There So Many Shingle Granules in My Gutters?
Shingle granules are the small, sand-like particles that cover the surface of asphalt shingles. Over time, these granules can become loose and fall off, especially if the roof is nearing the end of its lifespan. Excessive granule loss can also be caused by other factors, such as improper installation or ventilation or damage from severe weather events like hail or high winds. If a roof has suffered hail damage or cracked shingles, it can accelerate the loss of granules.
While losing a certain amount of granules is normal, finding an excessive buildup in the gutters can be a warning sign that the roof needs to be inspected by a professional. An experienced roofer can assess the condition of the roof and determine if repairs can be made. If too many granules are gone, replacement might be necessary.

Asphalt shingle repair is a common but critical roofing repair that can be done by a professional roofer. When experts fix shingles, they use a process to ensure that the shingles are fully repaired.
Some of the steps involved in fixing shingles that have deteriorated include:
- Identifying the damaged shingles: The first stage is to identify which shingles are missing, cracked, or curled.
- Removing the damaged shingles: Using a pry bar, a roofer will carefully lift shingles that are too far gone, removing any nails or adhesive that are holding them in place.
- Installing new shingles: New shingles will be installed in the spots where old shingles have been removed. It is important to use the same type and color of shingles as the existing ones to ensure a seamless repair.
- Securing the new shingles and sealing edges: The new shingles are secured in place with roofing nails and adhesive. Then, their edges are sealed with roofing cement to prevent water from seeping underneath.
Prompt action is the most effective method for halting further deterioration and erosion to the roof and preventing more costly repairs down the line, so don’t hesitate to call Recovery Roofing.
